  • There are more than 50 completed high-rises in Oklahoma City, most of which stand in the central business district. In the city, 18 buildings stand 250 feet (76 m) and taller. The tallest building in Oklahoma City, and in Oklahoma, is the 50-story Devon Tower, which rises 844 feet (257 m) in the central business district. Other notable skyscrapers are Chase Tower and First National Center, which stand as the second and third-tallest buildings in Oklahoma City, respectively. Six of the 10 tallest buildings in Oklahoma are located in Oklahoma City. The history of skyscrapers in Oklahoma City began with the completion of the Colcord Hotel, Oklahoma City's first skyscraper. After oil was discovered in the area, the population of Oklahoma City grew significantly. As a result, the city's skyline expanded, which featured a "race to the top" with the synchronous construction of First National Center and City Place Tower in the central business district. Contemporary skyscrapers began to be built in the north and west sides of Oklahoma City, and later in the downtown area. In 1993, Oklahoma City voters approved the MAPS (Metropolitan Area Projects) program, which featured the construction of several distinct domestic facilities and restorations and expansions of other older ones. It was completed in 2004 and is deemed to be the first program of its kind for a city the size of Oklahoma City. The Devon Tower, which was completed in 2012, has overtaken the Chase Tower as the tallest building in Oklahoma City with a height of 844 feet (257 m). It has also become the tallest building in the state of Oklahoma, surpassing the BOK Tower in Tulsa. The 50-story building occupies over 1,800,000 square feet (170,000 m2) and had an estimated construction cost of $750 million (USD). (en)
